The Act of Becoming, 2009
Hand-dyed, screen-printed, and stitched fabrics
Cameron Anne Mason combines her love of working with fabric with her aptitude for creating in three-dimensions in her MadArt piece. The figure is used to explore that which is seen and that which is kept close to the skin. The intentional siting of this work in Ann Marie Lingerie places the installation in context, and displays what is often hidden, the dreams and inner support that are only hinted at on the surface. The fabric for this installation was created through breakdown printing, a silk-screen process that changes with each print. Hand patterning, forming, and stitching complete the pieces that form the installation.
